MANDOLIN ORANGE — THIS Thursday, October 25 at 7pm. Amazing acoustic duo Mandolin Orange stops in while on break from touring with Kathleen Edwards. Free show, free beer, great tunes!
“Mandolin Orange carries an understanding of tradition and shapes it into a thing of beauty. They craft simple songs that go beyond chord progressions and vocal harmonies, leading somehow toward something pure. Using acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin and a hand-me-down fiddle, Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz allure with a heart-worn sensibility. Last year’s Haste Make/ Hard Hearted Stanger combines bluegrass, rock and country for lullabies that swoon.”
–Ashleigh Phillips, Independent Weekly
Rosanne Cash said: “Love it … It has the plainspoken, mournful power of bluegrass and the elegance and intricacy of American classical, like Copland or Barber. Fantastic record.“
